We are still at the hospital, nothing is wrong just a precaution for Oliver. Merriann is ready to be out of there. Hopeful this afternoon she will be coming home.
The newest addition to our family is Oliver . He is 7lbs 11oz, and 20 1/2 inches long. Born on Nov 6.

Merriann and Oliver are both doing great! So thanks for your prayers. God is so great!
One of Zeke’s favorite things was his swing. We called it his old man chair. He was so content to sit there, hand on his belly and quietly watch the world around him. It was a sad day when we finally had to retire the swing. It had started groaning under the presser of a growing boy and couldn’t give him much of a ‘swing’.
The other day I hear a joyous scream coming from his room. This was no squeal. I remember being shocked at how loud the scream was. When I com around the corner Zoe is laughing and Zeke is in his swing screaming with all his might and kicking his legs. Zoe had allowed him another run in his favorite place.
A couple weeks ago we headed to Padilla Bay with some friends to check out their cider press class. It was not a pretty day in our neck of the woods. Dark and rainy…but with some rain jackets, boots and umbrellas we were ready. When we arrived, however, we were surprised to find the sun shining! It was a beautiful sunny fall day. We were all the more in the mood for some good ol’ cider.
This was one of the best parts. After pressing all the juice out the apple bits are understandably packed in the press. Our guide just got done telling the kids they couldn’t push the apples out because it was so packed. Well, that was all Zoe needed to hear. I mean, look at that face…determination, some force and…
The last thing to do before trying some cider was to plant an apple tree of course! The parents were also asked if anyone wanted to buy the tree. This particular tree will be “planted” 8 more times before it is available for someone to purchase for their own yard. We had a lot of fun getting out in the beautiful fall air and learning a little in the processes. I think we’ll be visiting again. We even planned a camping trip for next year.
Oh, and for those of you that are wondering…no baby yet.
